* CryForTheDevil: Most of the "bad" people Subaru encounters are just normal people that were very, very broken to the point of lashing out, and the main lesson Tokyo Babylon teaches is that nobody should judge people's suffering but instead trying to understand them and thier reasons. The "Start" annex provides the quintessential quote.

Added DiffLines:

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The manga drops more than a few anvils directed at Japan (at the time the manga was written) specifically, relating to how Japanese society handles bullying, the mentally ill, rape victims, older people, and immigrants. They don't really propose solutions all of the time, but the idea is put out there.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Many fanfics downplay [[spoiler:Seishirou]]'s flaws and turn him into a possesive yet loving BastardBoyfriend, instead of a downright possesive, evil normal bastard.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The manga was aimed at teenagers in Japan but its themes are surprisingly dark. Before the end, the authors received lots of letters asking for a happy ending but this did not change the writers' plan.

* FetishFuel: Incredibly handsome, dangerous older man pursuing pretty, innocent teenage boy? Check. Dark, brooding, sinister yet sexy undertones? Check. And then CLAMP goes and deconstructs this ''brutally''.
